My wife was given a gift certificate to Koberl at Blue for Christmas, so we decided to come here to celebrate our anniversary. We had a very pleasant and relaxing evening. The restaurant has a warm atmosphere and decor, and was certainly buzzing (perhaps a little noisy in the bar and downstairs area) on the Thursday night we ate there. We sat upstairs in the back, so it was relatively quiet, and we were able to hear ourselves talk. The service was excellent: attentive without hovering, friendly without too much personal chit-chat. For starters my wife had the potstickers- large portion; good but nothing special. I had the carpaccio which was excellent. We are not huge eaters and could probably have split either of the appetizers. To follow, she had the crispy filet salmon and I had the duck breast. The salmon was beautifully cooked but overall the dish was somewhat bland. The duck was also beautifully cooked (large portion) but the accompanying hash rather starchy, and the port-pomegranate sauce rather salty and without much depth. Nothing on the dessert menu sounded especially good, and we certainly weren't hungry, so we passed. Including a nice bottle of Claiborne and Churchill pinot, the bill came to about $140 excluding tip. I'm glad we ate there, as we have been wanting to try it for quite some time, but even more glad that that the gift certificate reduced our actual cost to $40 plus tip. Overall I'd say the food was very good but nothing special or adventurous, so we probably will not go again.
